Reson Mpatinae was married off when she was nine-years-old by her father, who believes that educating a girl is valueless compared to a dowry. Reson and three of her sisters were all forced to drop out of school to be circumcised and married off. With the help of female activists and the chief of her village, Reson was brought to the rescue center at Kajiado Adventist School, where her step-sister, Nashipae, who was rescued from marriage at age 10, has been since January 2012. She is happy to be with her sister and in the company of other rescue girls, who share similar life experiences. Having dropped out of preschool in order to be wed, Reson resumed her studies as a preschooler in January 2012 and is making amazing progress.
